Samsung Sends Out Invites for Galaxy Note 9 Launch

Samsung is getting close to launching its next big flagship, the Galaxy Note 9. The company today sent out invites for Unpacked 2018, where the company is expected to launch the new Note 9. The invite itself doesn’t show off much of the device, but we get a first look at the device’s new yellow/gold color which seems pretty sleek.

Specs-wise, it’s not clear if Samsung has any huge surprises in store for fans. Like the Galaxy S9, there isn’t going to be a lot of new features and upgrades on the Note 9, according to rumours. The company is expected to focus heavily on the camera of the device, possibly introducing some major upgrades. The invitation for the event also shows off the device’s stylus, so it’s possible Samsung has packed some upgrades to the pen that comes with the Note 9. The device recently passed the FCC, so the launch was inevitable.

Samsung’s Unpacked 2018 is on August 9, and the event will be live streamed on Samsung’s official website at 11AM ET.

    <p>The Note was always my phone of choice until the Note 7 debacle. I went to Pixel when the Note 7 was recalled a second time and now it is so hard to go back due to the lack of updates, skinned Android and duplicate Samsung apps that you can't remove. Plus, Bixby. I am not anti-Samsung but I just prefer a cleaner Android these days. The only think that would tempt me would be any camera improvements. </p>

      <blockquote><a href="#286602"><em>In reply to wolters:</em></a></blockquote><p>I don't mind the bloat ware. What I do mind is you cannot remove them or reassign buttons like Bixby. </p>

        <blockquote><a href="#286617"><em>In reply to harmjr:</em></a></blockquote><p>I wonder if they'll leave off the Bixby button this time? It is curious they are stopping the "Bixby Rewards Points" around the time of the Note 9 announcement. </p>

        <blockquote><a href="#286617"><em>In reply to harmjr:</em></a></blockquote><p>At least it looks like they moved the bixby button from the left side to the right, I have an S9+ and hit it all the time instead of the volume down. There is an app to change the function of the bixby button (I made mine a camera button) but it only works with the phone unlocked from what I can tell. Otherwise it works great. </p>

    <p>There's a typo in the "teaser" text. The reference to Unpacked 2019 should be Unpacked 2018 (based on the article).</p>

    <p>When my S7 finally dies, I would be very happy to get a Note of whatever generation is current. Samsung Pay is the killer app for me… Where we leave, NFC payment is very slow to roll out, but SP works everywhere. </p>

    <p>I guess my invitation got lost in all those internet tubes.</p>
